Kota Kinabalu: A message circulated via SMS warning people of a man going around scratching people's faces before running off with their belongings has been brushed aside as mere rumours by police.

The message was allegedly sent from the police station claiming that a total of six cases were reported here, warning about somebody knocking on car windows and showing a name card and asking for directions.

It warned people not to lower their car window because there is a blade hidden behind the name card, which the man would use to scratch the unsuspecting victim before making off with their belongings.

City Police Chief ACP Jauteh Dikun (pic) on Saturday brushed aside the allegations as mere rumours, adding that they have never received any such report and that police have never issued any such warning.

He advised people not to believe in the SMS, which he believed was spread by irresponsible people out to create unrest among the people.
